RSVP is required to attend.

Beginners are welcome. No previous docent experience needed.

Sandy Steinman will lead a walk along the Bay Trail toward Meeker Slough. This is a chance to see the shorebirds and waterbirds that have returned for the winter.  It is also an opportunity to meet with other Birding the Bay Trail Docents.  Also Noreen will be there and can provide docent materials and answer questions about the docent program. Wear your walking shoes and bring binoculars and a refillable water bottle and a spotting scope if you have one. There are restrooms at this location.

Golden Gate Audubon in partnership with the East Bay Regional Park District trains Birding the Bay Trail Docents each fall. These docents learn about the natural history Richmond, the Bay Trail and the birds
that depend on this habitat. They then share views of the beautiful birds with the public. Volunteers commit to go out with another docent two hours per month from October 2018 through March 2019. This is
a great way to get outdoors and enjoy nature with people. On the trail, docents will set up a station to increase the public’s interest in local birds and to promote wildlife stewardship.
